Here we go again: Gambit edition

Just stumbled upon this:

With a blurb that more will be revealed during a con panel on the 15th.

I’m a bit ‘meh’ about this one.  Gambit is a character that can carry his own title, especially now that he’s (mostly) free of the Rogue relationship shackle around his ankle.  Fabian Nicieza did a great job with a Gambit solo title a while back.  But Marvel tries and tries with Gambit and it never seems to work out.  They simply don’t know what to do with him.

There’s a big story thread left dangling with Gambit – the whole Horseman of Death thing – that needs to be resolved, so hopefully this will be the place for it to happen.  I think I’m actually going to pick this one up if its writer is someone that jumps at me like Mike Carey or Christos Gage.

  1. Apparently, he’s going to be a “sexy” thief, who will steal from everywhere in the Marvel Universe, including Space. Oh, and he’ll be fighting Kirby monsters.
